EDS Special Membership Growth Program
To support the exploration and development of activities and best practices for growing membership in our Society, a new funding opportunity is now available for use by EDS Chapter Officers. This special-project funding is available to support EDS chapters with new initiatives specifically targeting member recruitment and/or retention. Proposals designed to enhance the participation of student members, young professionals, women, and under-represented communities (i.e. ethnic, social, or economic groups that are under-represented in EDS membership) are especially welcome. Both one-time and multi-year initiatives will be considered. EDS chapter officers are especially encouraged to propose creative, new ideas with the potential for growing the membership of the Society.
